This mission can be acquired through different methods:
- In Site 1: Promise, there is a datapad that can be found in the lower floor of the building near the Tempest.
- Examining the datapad will begin the mission.
- Alternatively, this mission will start automatically if Ryder enters Site 2: Resilience.
Investigate Resilience Edit
Go to Site 1: Promise to start the mission or straight to Site 2: Resilience.
Search Site 2 For The Secret Research Project Edit
Site 2: Resilience is near the lake on Eos. The failed outpost was a victim of a kett attack that wiped out most of the colonists stationed there. A recreation of a conversation between two colonists can be found in the second story of the main building. Examining the only available door on the first floor reveals that it was locked from the outside.
Entering the building, a power terminal in the second room can be activated. Upon activation, SAM informs the Pathfinder that a bulletin was released at the time of shutdown; it simply said "Run." The locked door opens, revealing a Fiend, while a kett dropship approaches the site. Prepare for a rather difficult fight with a tough enemy.
Defeat The Kett Edit
Fight off the kett and the released fiend. Another kett dropship approaches soon after the first, so be prepared.
Once the kett have been cleared, Ryder can continue to search Site 2 for the secret research project. Through one of the now-opened doors, a console can be interacted with to reveal that the secret project was building something to fight the kett with. The project could be finished, with the right components.
Recover Components (1/3) Edit
Three components must be found and Ryder automatically begins with one recovered. The other two components will be marked with. The second component can be found just a few steps away in the next room. The last component requires a bit of a drive or walk around the lake to a crashed Initiative shuttle.
Scan The Research Project Edit
With all of the components collected, return to Site 2. Near the console that Ryder interacted with before, scan an Adapted Initiative Core Tech (+100 ) to complete the mission.
